I am trying to clean coffee stains from a white Corian sink. What should I use?

I did this, not only did the stain NOT come out, it totally ruined my brand new sink. Do not do this.
I have tried bleach, vinegar and ammonia as well as scrubbed the sink with the pads they provided on installation on a corian sink that has coffee stains. Nothing worked that the Corian company suggested on their web-site. I went to Lowes. The guy there said "yes, that is a problem with Corian". He had no ideas but wanted me to let him know if I found anything that did work.
I went back home and found some "IRON OUT" left over from a problem we had with our water filter this past summer. I sprinkled some on--let it set for 30 seconds and washed it off with warm water and a sponge. TOTALLY GONE. I am amazed that the Corian people don't know this!
I recently got a Corian double sink & counter-top, the sink is white. Wow, was I disappointed at the staining. I am not a fan of using bleach, but Softscrub with bleach did remove the staining. I tried my usual "safe' treatments first, ie. Mr Clean white block scrubber, baking soda, peroxide, & Dollar Tree brand oxi-clean, which always worked on my porcelain sink. All were a bust :( I did use BarKeepers Friend this morning & it did a good job too, but contains oxalic acid which I am sure is not environmentally or human friendly. I love the Corian sink & counter because there are no seams to get grundgy. So, all in all, I will take the inconvenience of having to use the occasional bleach product over my old Formica & porcelain combo.
